Lovecraftian Science - "Dreams in the Witch House"

Lovecraftian Science is a very interesting Wordpress blog that does scientific investigations into the Cthulhu Mythos. The scientist (who I only know as "Fred") is wonderful at writing and I believe that he brings up some very interesting things.

Fred recently posted a series of articles on The Dreams in the Witch House. Here are all of them! Please support his site!

The Mathematics of the Witch House; Pt. One
Very interesting.

The Mathematics of the Witch House; Pt. Two Hyperspace
A cool article about the fourth dimension.

The Mathematics of the Witch House; Pt. Three Higher Dimensions
You know, its strange because my draft of the script saw Gilman using a tesseract and I found this which mentioned the same geometrical concept. 

The Mathematics of the Witch House; Pt. Four How to Travel Through Hyperspace
A kind of follow-up to the second article, fascinating.

Pt. Five What Exactly is Brown Jenkin?
Bringing out the big guns - who or what is Brown Jenkin? This brings cool answers to that question.

Pt. Six Elder Things in the Witch House
Really cool and comprehensive article. Brings some interesting things to light about the Elder Things. Also contains a shout-out to the rock opera.

Pt. Seven A Few Thoughts on the Discussion of The Dreams in the Witch House
A wrapper-upper piece. Another positive thought on our beloved album, too. Finishing up the rest of it all.

Props Are Secure!

Jason McKittrick and I have selected a time for the sale of our prop set!

I have commissioned...
  • The athame that belonged to the witch Keziah Mason, used in her dark Halloween and Walpurgisnacht rituals to Nyarlathotep.
  • A violet resin Elder Thing statue that was found in Walter Gilman's bed after he had broken it off in a triple star system inhabited by the monstrous entities dubbed the Elder Things by Prof. Lake and Prof. Dyer (in At the Mountains of Madness).
  • A photo of the fabled Witch House of Arkham, taken before it was razed.
  • A frontispiece from Keziah Mason's trial, featuring a woodcut of the witch herself.
  • A woodcut of Brown Jenkin, the demonic familiar belonging to Keziah/Nahab that is reputed to haunt the Witch House.
  • A page from the spellbook of the witch Keziah Mason, depicting vaguely geometrical lines and curves that can allegedly transport one through hyperspace (the scientific concept of the fourth dimension).
  • Walter Gilman's physics/advanced mathematics notebook, used in his classes with Prof. Upham at the fabled Miskatonic University.
Also, I am editing the script - actually, adding a scene on Halloween (something that should've been in there in the first place). I'm planning to add a little reference to Nyarlathotep's home on dark Yuggoth.

I am very anxious to get these props. I might give one to each of the major cast members as a memento of the film...and a few will probably showcased in the possible documentary.

The props I have commissioned.
